 * PADL provides a forum for researchers, practitioners, and
   implementors of declarative languages to exchange ideas on current
   and novel application areas and on the requirements for effective
   deployment of declarative systems.  We invite papers dealing with
   practical applications of newly discovered results and techniques in
   logic, constraint, and functional programming.  Papers dealing with
   practical applications of theoretical results, new techniques of
   implementation with considerable impact on an application, or
   innovative applications are particularly welcome.  Position papers
   as well as papers that present works in progress are also welcome.
 * The scope of PADL includes, but is not limited to: Innovative
   applications of declarative languages, Declarative domain-specific
   languages and applications, New developments in declarative
   languages and their impact on applications o Practical experiences,
   Evaluation of implementation techniques on practical applications,
   Novel uses of declarative languages in the classroom
   The papers should highlight the practical contribution of the work 
   and  the relevance of  declarative languages  to achieve that end.
